Column: FC set to beat Jeff at Seymour this Friday


By JD McKay

This basketball team has been one of the best in Floyd Central history, comparable to the Pat Graham-led team from 1989. Both teams had a star player, both teams had solid second and third players, and both teams had a villian. Then, it was Damon Bailey. Now it is Romeo Langford.

However, to get to play Langford, we need to beat an athletic Jeffersonville team. When I watched Jeff play earlier this year I was impressed by their athleticism, but aside from senior Bailey Falkenstein, unimpressed by how they scored the ball. I could see that being their achilles heel.

We have scorers. Junior Cobie Barnes and senior Luke Gohmann can light it up from outside or get to the rack and finish tough shots. Senior Brendon Hobson can drive to the hole as well, and with his length, finish tough layups.

Bottom Line- Jeff played us tough this year, and I expect it will be close again, the outcome should not change. The Highlanders can simply score better, and if senior Gabe Shireman finally hits his stride or Gohmann heats up, I am not picking against Floyd.

Score- FC 62 Jeff 56
